Family Style Easter Egg Hunt Secrets

Family Style Easter Egg Hunt Secrets

Easter is one of those busy times of the year. New dresses or suits are necessary. Tons of eggs needed to boil and color. Plastic eggs are always an option; however, that does not stop you from needing those hard eggs. One of the best parts Easter is the egg hunts. Here comes the biggest problem with Easter. After several years, the Easter egg hunts become mundane, and boring to the children. Here are some ideas to liven up your egg hunts.

Great Egg Race

There are several ways to play this game. Here are some options.

  • Place an even number of eggs and placing them in a row. Have kids start at the beginning of the row and race to pick up as many eggs as possible. The one who gets to the end of the line first is the winner.

 

  • Put tons of eggs all over the yard. They do not all have to be hiding. Some can be easy to find for those younger kids. Others can be more difficult so that the older children can still be involved. At the end, the winner will be the one with the most eggs. So, let the race begin.

Coded Messages

Once our kids get older, hunting no longer is something fun. In order to make it fun for them you have to increase the difficulty level. This idea is where you hide clues to the next egg in each of the previous eggs. You can print as many clues as you need, and it they can be long or short. It can be done simultaneously while the other kids are doing their egg hunt.

Golden Egg Contest

The golden egg contest is one of the simplest options to add something to your basic egg hunt. Best Family Traditions has some great options for a nice egg coloring. The golden egg is a great way to offer a special prize at the end of the basic egg hunt. You may use any color egg, but it needs to be just one egg of that color. This gives you the ability to know which one is the specific egg.

Letter Eggs – Making Words

There are some options when it comes to letter eggs. They can be used as a teaching tool or as a reward at the end of the egg hunt. Playing house had some great ideas.

  • As a teaching tool, you can take a set of plastic eggs. You will want to get at least enough to make one per alphabet letter. Some letters that you will want to double up on, making the formation of words easier done. Then you will place a capital letter on half of the egg and a lower case on the other half. This can be a letter recognition, and then help with word formation.

 

  • Each egg can have a letter on them. You can pick a secret word and have the kids use the letter eggs to form that word. For those individuals, that is able to create the word from letter eggs will receive a special prize different from the others.

There is a wonderful time of the year. Weather is turning warm, birds are chirping. Spring is in the air.

The best part of Easter is the crafts and the foods. The special treats and moments we get to share with our littlest smiles. Traveling the internet can be annoying and complicated, so here are some ideas to help you.

Treats

Sometimes treats are not just yummy but they are fun to make and eat at the same time.

This treat is fun to eat, and fun to make with your children. The loved Rice Krispies treat has some neat designs to it. This is a yummy variation of a Birds Nest. A Rice Krispies nest with coconut grass and chocolate or jellybean eggs creates this yummy treat.

Another, tasty variation to the Rice Krispies treat is a bunny. The Easter Bunny Treat is just as simple all the other Rice Krispies Treat. Make the Rice Krispies as normal. Roll them into balls to make the bunny bodies. Cut some ears out of construction paper. Then use frosting to attach the ears. Make some eyes, whiskers, and nose with either frosting or candies.

Desire a healthier snack. The Frugal Girls came up with a delectable and healthy option to Easter snacking. The Peep Fruit Kabob combines your favorite fruits with the sweetness of one of the greatest know Easter treats. Combine the peeps with fruit to make alternate your favorite fruit.

Crafts

Even some crafts can be fun for all of the family to make. Crafts can make great things to help you remember the special day, or to place as centerpieces on the table.

Here is some neat little chick treat holders. These are easy to make and can be lots of fun with lots of decorating ideas. Easter Chick Egg Holders are quick and easy craft to do. Jennifer’s Little World gives full directions. However, simply put cut a toilet paper roll in half. Then paint or color the tube yellow as a chick. Cut out a couple of chick feet from orange construction paper. Do not forget some felt for the nose, and wiggly eyes. You can fill this craft once you are done; use it as a snack holder, or to hide a few treats on the table.

Sometimes it is amazing all the things that we can do with paper tubes. Not only are chicks fun to make, but what about these bunnies. Craftulate gave us a great idea for a bunny. Use the paper tube and paint, color, or use tissue paper to decorate the outside of the tube white. Use craft foam to create ears and a nose. Do not forget the wiggly eyes, and draw on a mouth. Now you have a cute bunny for the table.

Having fun with the family, making decorations for the lunch table, or even a sweet treat to take to the family events. Try one or try them all. Searching the internet can help you find great activities for any event.
